Heat and more importantly heating cycles can have a large effect on corrosion. A coating could be perfect at ambient temps and never corode but start heating or providing heat cycles and youll see a whole new set of issues.

yeah not adding heat to this equation i would think that corrosion wouldn't occur more rapidly that way.

but right now i'm just trying to see if it flakes or corrodes even a little bit. i dont wnat to go insane and do all these things when its just a small project

anyone think i should use a res in this project? i just thought filling the blocks n pumps with water and just do that

I think using a res will make it a lot easier to monitor the loop.

Since it is just the pump and all nickel plated blocks and distilled water you shouldnt get corrosion, since the water shouldnt get ionized. To have corrosion you need conductive/ionized water and a cathode and an anode. It is the radiator that supplies copper/zinc/solder tin to our loops, and copper would be one of the main concerns over time.

if your just seeing if nickel plating falls off without corrosion that would be ok test, though doubt it will. If you want to test distilled water in a mock loop for corrosion, you need to add at least a radiator to supply ions to loops over time like our loops do.

yeah i can do that add a radiator with no fans. to see if that would happen

i got my pump in today. my EK top should be coming in soon.

after that i can just hook up a radiator to use. i just need a small res and some tubing which i probably will order soon.

but do you know what i should use just to clean my block for now cause it has small little specs and not sure if its anything but just want it to be clean before i start
